Probably better than Victory. Amazing restoration job. Very interesting to see how warships had evolved by 1860

This was our last attraction to visit at Portsmouth docks very similar to HMS victory inside but much smaller and with more manageable steps! Well worth visiting

HMS Warrior stands to the left as you enter the historic dockyard in Portsmouth and it's amazing that it has survived. When built in 1860 as the first metal-hulled battleship she was invincible. Take a tour inside and you will see the huge steam-driven engines...More

A wonderful experience. Very large and impressive. Interesting that it was never seen in action - a real deterrent ! Well positioned, even for photos from the outside. Do not miss !
